Classic Banjo Themed T-Shirts

Not that I was expecting to find anything, but I recently tried to find some cool banjo themed t-shirts online..(They all seem to be about bluegrass... so no thanks).I thought though that it would be cool to find a good graphic artist that could design some nifty classic banjo themed t-shirts. I'm sure that somebody could come up with something very cool with keywords such as "Mister Jollyboy", Banjo Vamp(ire?), Sunflower Dance or Banjoland..Perhaps funds could help raise money for this site.…See More

"Courtesy of the late Trebor Tichenor, here’s a 1959 photograph of Darch onstage in Sedalia (in full 1950s ragtime regalia — “Chicken Inspector?”) with, rather amazingly, an elderly and dignified Arthur Marshall, Scott…"

"Hi Joel, Well, I’ve always sort of wondered that myself, which is why I posted all of this. Though again, Bob was a good friend who truly loved the music and respected the composers — which is why it seemed odd whenever he appeared to…"

"Reading about Darch online one my get the impression that Calliope Rag could be 100% Darch with the added story that turns it into a genuine authentic ragtime composition by James Scott. Where does that leave it re copyright?"

"Thanks so much for posting this, Chris. One thing puzzles me and that is the speculation about the chords to the first part of the tune. What else could they possibly be besides the chord that are usually used?  The melody pretty much…"

""Darkies Dream" by George Lansing was possibly the biggest selling solo in classic banjo history (at least in the US).  It was recorded by Vess Ossman and Fred Van Eps many times, as well as lots of other players.  There are a…"

"You are a lot braver than I!  I bet you could sail through pieces like "Darkie's Dream/ Awakening" or the old "Funeral March of an Old Jaw Bone." Sounding good.  I agree, that terrible metronome will eventually…"
